Telephone Dialing Code

Jan 2, 2008

This has definitely been done before, but I am not sure if it has been done through Excel/VBA.

I have a 9 or 10 digit telephone number, preceded by a zero and what I want to do is get Excel to figure out the combinations of text characters that will allow me to have a text phone number.

For Example:
0-800-43573375 is the same as 0-800-HELPDESK

Removing Telephone Numbers From A Cell?

Jun 1, 2013

I have a limited amount of VBA knowledge. My limited knowledge is based on solving my problems by looking at the answers already on this site and trying to adapt it to my needs. Here goes:

I import a list of address and telephone numbers (100+) into excel. example - Cell A1 contains "10 downing street, whitehall, london, SW1A 2AA 01234 567890", sometimes there is another space after the number, sometimes there is no telephone number. I want to remove the telephone number at the end if it is there. Have searched the forums have have come up with the follow solution:

1. import list to column A
2. copy and paste Trim to column B
3. copy values in column B and paste to column A
4. delete column B
5. remove the end numbers
6. copy and paste Trim to column B
7. copy values in column B and paste to column A
8. delete column B
9. remove the end numbers

It looks like this in code:

Sub testa()

'select (=TRIM(A1)) formula and paste to sheet
Application.CutCopyMode = False


'copy values of column B to Column A and delete column B

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False


'copy values of column B to Column A and delete column B

Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _
:=False, Transpose:=False
Application.CutCopyMode = False
End Sub

I know this is a long winded way around (still chuffed I worked it out by myself though!). If I merge all the macros into one marco it continually loops and deletes everything in the cells and I have to press escape to stop it.

My questions are:

1. Why, when I merge all the macros doesnt it work the same as individual macros? (I would like to know for future reference).
2. Its there a better way to remove the telephone numbers?

Inserting State Names Based On Telephone Numbers

Oct 22, 2007

I have a large data set (excel file), of "Names", "Phone Numbers", and i need to sort this based on the States that correspond with the Phone numbers. The states currently do not exist in the spreadsheet, so my current problem is trying to insert those states into the spreadsheet.

There are over 100 area codes in the data set, so i'll likely have to write a large "If" statement in VB to run through them all, but that shouldnt be a problem.

Bleh, 555-555-5555, =ChkState(B2)

I've been playing around with the VB Stuff in Excel and this is what i've come up with for trying to insert the State field

Function ChkState(pVal As String) As Long

Dim AreaCode As String
Dim StateAbrv As String

AreaCode = Left(pVal, 3)

If AreaCode = "201" Then
StateAbrv = "Test201"
ElseIf AreaCode = "203" Then
StateAbrv = "Test203"
ElseIf AreaCode = "555" Then
StateAbrv = "Test555"
StateAbrv = "0"
End If
MsgBox StateAbrv
End Function

I'm fairly new to this VB stuff, my main problem stems from trying to insert the "StateAbrv" back into the Cell for the spreadsheet.

Calculations To Manual Before My Code Runs And Set It Back To Auto When My Code Is Done Running

May 12, 2009

I am dealing with several very large spreadsheets using VBA to do various things. I found that my code worked well, but was taking a long time to run. The biggest time consumer was my use of the AutoFilter features. I have since turned calculations to manual before my code runs and set it back to auto when my code is done running. What are the potential consequences of my turning calculations to manual and then back to auto?

Excel 2010 :: VBA Code To Extract HTML Source Code Not Working On Google Sites

Dec 6, 2012

I have previously used the following code to successfully pull out IE webpage source code for string manipulation.

Its a crude example to demonstrate the principle:

Public Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
Public IE As Object
Sub Sample()
Set IE = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
IE.Visible = True

[Code] ......

However when I substitute in a Google websites address into the IE.Navigate command, the code runs to the "Source_Code = IE.document ...." line then flags up a Microsoft Visual Basic error. "Run-time error '438': Object doesn't support this property or method"

The webpage that I am trying to access is a confidential company site, so you won't be able to access it yourself, but starts with [URL] ......

The one thing that I have noticed about this website is the Privacy Report icon in the lower right status window (Picture of an eye with a restricted symbol in front). I don't know whether this is the cause of my problem, or purely an incidental observation.

Is there something peculiar with Google sites that means that the source code cannot be extracted in general, or is this an issue specific to my site ? Does the Privacy Report icon have any relevance, and if so how do I switch that off ?

Using :
MS Excel 2010
IE Explorer 8.0

Have Code To Block Save But How To Keep Code In Workbook Without Saving The File

Aug 1, 2013

My company has files that are already in use. I don't know too many details about how they work, but somehow saving the file will screw it up and my boss has to go back and reset something or other to correct it. Obviously it's connected to some other software somewhere. The code below will block Save and Save-As. BUT how do I get the file to hold onto the code without actually saving the file after the code is added (since the file shouldn't be saved)?

Private Sub Workbook_BeforeSave(ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
If SaveAsUI = False Then
Cancel = True

Passing Variables And Values Between Sheet Code And Module Code

May 13, 2009

I have some buttons in different sheets in an excel file, each button has its own code, that is the reason I can not move the code related to each object to another location (sheet or module).

And I have one piece of code in Module1 (Auto_load) in order to execute automatically this routine every time file is opened. Inside "auto_load" routine I initialize some values of some check buttons,options buttons and positions of some objects in diferent sheets, but I can not pass the value of variables between Module and Sheet's code even when I declare as public variables and/or function.

I have the following structure: ...

Code To Delete Rows Based On Status Code In Column

Jul 24, 2009

I'm trying to write a VBA script which will delete all rows in my Excel spreadsheet where Column I (which contains a status code) does not contain the word "Completed".

At the moment, I'm doing this the other way round: my script is able to search for entries in Column I which contain the status codes "Pending", "Awaiting Authorisation", "In Progress" etc and delete them. The idea is that when all those rows are deleted, I'll only be left with rows which have a status of "Completed". This works fine at the moment. However, the concern is that if a brand new status code is added to the data file, my script would be unable to pick it up and delete it. This is a small sample of the code I'm currently using (which deletes all the rows with statuses other than Completed):

Standard Way To Organize Sections Of Code With Code Tags?

Jul 25, 2014

Is there a standard way to organize sections of code with code tags? Due to the nature of my work, there is a lot of documentation involved. And, my spreadsheets rely heavily on VBA. These code tag sections will be going into a design specification, so that there is a layer of traceability from the document to the program. These are the general sections or item numbers that I've come up with.

1. Dimensions and Variables

2. Data

3. Processing the Data

4. Rules of analysis

5. Analysis

6. Formatting

I guess I'm looking for something standard like UML diagrams for DFDs, but with tagging code to break them up into sections?

VBA Macro Code Needed To Run The Code Contained Within A Cell

Dec 17, 2008

I have a macro that, when run, needs to read the contents of cell B5, and run the code that it contains.

Cell B5, for example, would contain the text:
Range("B13").Formula = "SUM(D12:D14)"

I need a macro to "execute this code", as if it were in the macro itself.

I have assigned the above to a variable, but am not sure how to execute it.


Dim the_calc
the_calc = Range("B5").value

Now, how do I run the_calc ?

Put Hyperlink Code In This Button Code

Dec 5, 2007

Sub Increment()
Dim Lr As Long
Lr = Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
If IsNumeric(Cells(Lr, "A")) Then
Cells(Lr + 1, "A").Value = Cells(Lr, "A").Value + 1
End If
End Sub

This adds 1 to the previous cell and displays in the next available cell.

How could I make it sao that when this number enters in the cell it hyperlinks automatically to the master file?

Before this button was introduced I used this:

Private Sub App_WorkbookBeforeSave(ByVal Wb As Workbook, ByVal SaveAsUI As Boolean, Cancel As Boolean)
On Error GoTo Err_App_WorkbookBeforeSave

Dim hl As Hyperlink

For Each hl In Me.Hyperlinks
If Wb.FullName = hl.Address Then

VBA Code- How Do You Get The Code Boxes To Appear In Threads

Feb 19, 2008

I have code that inserts columns, inserts formulas, and then copies the formulas to the last row of data. It all works good but for some reason, the columns that are being copied, are being copied past the last row of data. It can always be determined how far down it will be copied. Examples: if the last row of data was row 4, then the formulas would be copied down to row 24, if the last row of data was row 54, then the formulas would be copied down to 254, if the last row of data was row 284, then the formulas would be copied down to 2284. I can not figure out how and wh this is happening, but whatever the last row of actual data is on the spreadsheet, there is a 2 being placed in front of the last row of data and the formulas are being copied down to whatever the last row is with the addition of a 2 in front.

Here is the code for the columns additions, and formulas:

Columns("O:S").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Columns("W:Z").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Columns("AB:AF").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Columns("AH:Al").Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Range("O2").FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(RC[1],""/"",RC[2],""/"",RC[3])"
Range("P2").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF((RC[3]=7),LEFT(RC[-2],1),LEFT(RC[-2],2))"
Range("Q2").FormulaR1C1 = "=IF((RC[2]=7),MID(RC[-3],2,2),MID(RC[-3],3,2))"
Range("R2").FormulaR1C1 = "=RIGHT(RC[-4],4)"

Lets take this first one for example:

Range("O2:S2").Copy Range("O2:S2", Range("O2:S2" & Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row))

If the last row of data was row 54, then columns O:S would have the formulas copied down to row 254.

How can this code be modified so the formulas will not be copied past the last row of data?

How do you get the code boxes to appear in these threads. I do not know how to do this. As you can see, all I did was copy and paste my code in this thread.

Display All VBA Code In Code Window (VBE)

Sep 4, 2006

When I started using VBA, all the code for each module was shown in the code window. This was a bit cumbersome when looking for one sub in particular. Now when I load VBA, all the Subs and Functions have their own page, and can be selected from the right hand drop down list. This is much easier for entering code, and finding subs. However, it is sometimes useful to see 'the big picture', so how do I swap between the two types of display?
